Saturday morning, I woke up bright and early to log my 6 mile run. It's been a few months since I've run this distance, but it's not a distance I find intimidating. I won't start breaking out the GU and Chomps again until I hit miles 8 and up. I've run my G's neighborhood before, and am obviously familiar with the area. I took off without a particular route in mind, I just started running. I didn't stress about pace, I enjoyed the change in scenery. At mile three, I veered off into what I thought was a small new-ish neighborhood to do some adventuring and I got lost! Thankfully, I was able to use my keen sense of direction, aka my iPhone, to help me get back home. This is the first time I have ever gotten lost on a run. It was surprisingly, refreshing!
Side Note- I'm experiencing some pain in my left foot while running. It started this past week, hopefully this won't materialize into anything greater.Aches and pains are a fact of life for the runner! During half training round one, my six mile run was also injury riddled. However, I was able to run through that as well. Only you can know the difference between, gotta see a doctor, I shouldn't be running pain, and meh this is a nuisance and uncomfortable pain. Listen to that body!
